♥♥ The 64th International Cannes Film Festival is currently underway. And of course it’s your typical dog and pony show with the latest and greatest independent films of 2011. Like the Jodie Foster movie Beaver which she directed starring her and Mel Gibson, the whimsical sci-fi film Melancholia from Denmark director Lars von Trier starring Kirsten Dunst, and many more.
♥♥ On the other side of the world, The Seattle International Film Festival is just right around the corner.
